Naturopathic Support for PCOS in White Rock
Dr. Gina Neonakis, ND is a naturopathic doctor that has a focus in PCOS. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common hormonal disorders in women of reproductive age. It’s a very complex condition, and the symptoms can be confusing and difficult to manage.
Unfortunately, many women are told that they will never be able to get pregnant and that their only options are birth control or metformin. This is far from the truth. Women with PCOS can absolutely get pregnant, and there are so many alternative options that treat the underlying causes of PCOS.
Common Underlying Causes in PCOS
PCOS is a complex disorder that is often driven by many underlying factors. A few common factors include:
- Insulin resistance
- Adrenal dysfunction
- Hormonal imbalances
Many of these factors contribute to one another. For example, insulin resistance can lead to higher androgens and inflammation. So, it’s important to work with a practitioner who can support you in determining where to start in treating YOUR PCOS.
My approach is to fully support you along your journey and educate you at every step of the way. I want you to understand what is happening in your body and why we are choosing certain lab tests and treatment options. You deserve to be empowered, informed and part of every decision in your health journey. We work together to support you in achieving your health goals.
